15 Taps, Barcelona 19 September 2023
At the end of July and without making too much noise, we presented the new project called Petit Komité Cerveser: a small group gathering of BBF friends in a beer space to share a beer tasting with a different theme for each occasion.
Volume 1 was presented as a ‘beer trip’: we reproduced the trip we had just made through the Valencian Country, visiting some of its breweries. We asked each of them to tell us which beer they wanted to represent them for a tasting that we would do afterwards; we took them with us, and so, while we tasted them, we told them about their projects and their history. We occupied the Okasional tasting room (Xavi is always so willing!) and we spent almost two and a half hours enjoying the anecdotes and the beers.
However, the main reason for our visit in Valencia was to make a collaborative beer with Vicent Bernal from COSA NOSTRA BREWING, the brand new winner of the award for the best brewery of 2023 at the prestigious Barcelona Beer Challenge International Awards. We went to meet Vicent and brewed a session IPA that we decided to call Barcelona Nuestra. And since we were presenting it on 19 September 2023 in Barcelona, we decided to organise volume 2 of Petit Komité Cerveser.
Therefore, the second chapter of this meeting revolved around the beers of Cosa Nostra with the presence of its brewer, who generated so much expectation that in less than 6 hours the few tickets available for sale on the BBF website were sold out. In addition, the tasting was held at the new 15 Taps bar (another Xavi mega-dedicated!) at 108 Floridablanca street in Barcelona: many reasons not to miss this select event!
Stay tuned for new editions of the Petit Komité Cerveser, which, although it is a small project (with few people), is proving to be very satisfying and full of content. It will be held every six weeks and we will soon announce the theme and location of the next Petit Komité Cerveser: you will need to be quick to reserve your place!
